Perkins Manufacturing leased 75,000 square feet of industrial manufacturing space within the 189,134-square-foot, 30′ clear building at 380 Veterans Pky. in Bolingbrook.
This marks the third move for Perkin’s in the last nine years due to continued growth of the company. Perkins expanded out of a 14,000-square-foot facility at 423 E. Elm Avenue in LaGrange, Illinois.
In 2007, Mark Nelson sold that property for residential development and moved them to a 35,000-square-foot facility at 737 Oakridge Drive in Romeoville. The company has more than doubled in size to take on the new space in Bolingbrook.
Founded in 1973, Perkins Manufacturing designs, manufactures and markets a full line of residential cart tippers and bin lifters. In addition, the company designs, manufactures and markets stand-alone industrial lifters, hydraulic rear load container latches, salt spreaders and front load carry cans. All of which are distributed around the world. With customers on six continents, Perkins is one of the most recognized brand names in the residential waste collection products.
